    Are you still in San Antonio? Ok so here is the deal. FI and I are going to Schlitterbahn next week and we were thinking about getting legally married down in SA. Can you think of any cool places to get married for free on the Riverwalk. We were thinking Marriage Island it is 200 bucks for a half an hour. BUT we wouldn't have anyone with us to take pictures I don't think. And you know as a true BDWer I can't process without a camera. Anyway, any Texas girls know of a place? Maybe I can con one of our friends to come with us....

      I am still here!

      In all honesty, Marriage Island isn't worth it. Last time we passed by it, they were doing a lot of construction near there and it was loud.

      Will you bring someone down there to marry you or are you hiring a JP from here?

      I think any one of the little bridges on the Riverwalk would be nice. Or even the botanical gardens. There is a beautiful little lake type thing with fish and turtles and a bunch of trees...I think it would be beautiful. You don't even have to tell them you are getting married. Just buy your ticket and walk around! Brackenridge Park is right by downtown and is really pretty. Oh and there are a few nature trails that we hike on, if you are an outdoorsy kinda couple.

      Let me know what kind of places you were thinking about and I will keep looking!

        We are just going to hire someone from down there. I found a site with a bunch of officiants. It's only 75 bucks. I think we really want to do it on the Riverwalk because our first trip was down there. BUT I am going to go look at the places you mentioned. Some of those bridges are beautiful. The only reason I was thinking the island is because we joked about getting married there when we first went down there.

            How about doing it while you are out on the Riverwalk boat cruise (I think they do dinner cruises every weekend, and that's pretty romantic), or like Martha said - any of the little bridges over the riverwalk, or over by la Villita, there is a little stage area (where they do shows and stuff) on the rivewalk, that might also be good.

              Thanks girls for your help. I would love to do the bridge but I am afraid of people trying to walk over it and just pushing us out of the way. I just emailed a few restaraunts. Maybe they will have a balcony we could do it on overlooking the river I hope so. If not that stage sounds good.

                Check out the FIG TREE restaurant...they have beautiful outside space - white lights and white tablecloths overlooking the riverwalk, and it is set a little higher than most, so it's not as crowded as many others.

                  Thanks! I emailed Boudros and some Mexican restaraunt I can't remember the name.

                    We thought about getting married on Marriage Island when we first got engaged. But, really it isn't a good location because of the construction.

                    I think if someone sees a wedding going on, they will stay out of the way (on one of the bridges). I didn't think about the boat rides, that's an option too!
